What We Like About LG 27UK650-W

This monitor is really fantastic with 4K, vibrant and consistent colors, and impressive contrast. Also, it has HDR support that makes everything look better.

The IPS panel of the monitor makes the colors, brightness, and contrast excellent. Also, the reflection handling of the monitor is excellent.

Its gloss finish diffuses reflections across the screen to minimize their intensity. That makes it suitable for most environments.

Also, the monitor has a flicker-free backlight and fast response time. The monitor also has an automatic standby feature that turns the monitor off after extended periods of no movement on the screen.

What We Don’t Like About LG 27UK650-W

What I don’t like about the monitor is that you cannot customize many settings when using the HDR Effect Mode or when HDR content is detected. Also, the stand lacks the swivel option, meaning you will need to rotate it together with the stand if you want to share something with someone sitting on the side.

The monitor also lacks the option to enable flicker to clear up blur, which might disappoint some gamers. Its refresh rate is 60Hz, and that might disappoint some severe gamers.

Due to its lack of low peak brightness and wide color gamut, the HDR gaming experience is not very good.
